How do I kickstart the renovation process?

Can I just purchase products from the Abode Renovations Showroom without engaging you to do the renovations?
We specialise in delivering an end-to-end service from providing initial quotes and consultation, through picking fixtures and accessories, and then finally delivering the completed renovation. Our showroom is open by appointment only however if you have your own builder, we would be happy to supply items for your renovation. 
Can I purchase my own products from another provider?
Yes, of course. We appreciate that there are many options available, and you may have a particular style in mind. We also ask that you ensure your products are delivered in line with the renovation schedule to ensure there are no delays.  Remember to ensure all your products are high quality and compatible with the planned renovations. 
How long will the renovation take?
It will depend on the size and the complexity of the renovation. As a guide, an average bathroom takes 3-4 weeks.
Will we be able to live in our home whilst we are renovating our bathroom?
Yes. But you do need to be prepared, as the bathroom will be unusable for the duration of work. You may require a portable toilet and shower and Abode Renovations can assist in hiring portable amenities at additional cost. We plastic cover all walkways for the duration of the renovation to keep the rest of your house as clean as possible. 
How much can I expect the renovation to to cost?
Bathrooms and laundries vary in size and style. We are happy to provide a free quote upon determination of your needs.

We encourage you to have as much input into the design as possible, as no one knows your taste better than you do. We guide you through the selection process and advise you on the advantages and disadvantages of the products you are considering. We recommend you contact us to book a private appointment at the  Abode Renovation Showroom to view our complete range of options.

Any building works over the value of $20,000 require Home Warranty Insurance – which will be arranged by Abode Renovations. 
Do you need council approval or a building permit?
Provided the renovation is not a major structural change, you usually do not need council approval.
